Topics I've Started

Cricket - England v India

10 July 2014 - 03:34 PM

England don't really seem to like finishing off their opponents.

 

Can you imagine any other test nation where the local club's groundsman would be allowed to prepare a dead pitch to keep the money-men happy in a 5 day test?


Daily Mail (I've lost count of the part number)

09 July 2014 - 09:08 AM

George Clooney hits back at the Mail for a dangerous article


Rant of the day - bills

02 July 2014 - 08:50 AM

Why is it that big bills always come at the same time?  Two days after I spent a small fortune on a holiday booking my car decides it wants to be a diva again and fail.  The bloody electronic unit in the gearbox died a death while driving, the cheapest bill if it can be repaired comes to around £1000, the most likely bill will be around £2000-£2500 if it has to be replaced.

 

And that just after a few other things needed replacement around the house.

 

For interest, the main Audi dealership are quoting a replacement price plus nice courtesy vehicle that's nearly 40% cheaper than any of the independent garages...


Another example of banking immorality

28 June 2014 - 01:48 PM

US funds threaten to ruin an entire country's economy so that some can make a nearly 2000% profit on Argentina's last default.  (The 2000% figure comes from another article I saw on a restricted site that showed some of the bonds were bought at about 5% of their original value at the last default).

 

There are many who say that morality has nothing to do with capitalism but I think we're at the point where a few heads need to be firmly smacked before the chase of this year's profit finally completely destroys tomorrow's financial future.


Cricket

Quite enjoying Sri Lanka's batting today.  300 lead over England now.
